The rewards and benefits of work experience are genuine. Besides the skills you bring to an organisation, you will find that you will learn more skills through your work with other people and benefit from their experience.
The organisation or group might also be able to help you to improve and develop your talents, too.
You will have the chance to understand how organisations work; at the same time you will be developing your own confidence and ability to work with others. Your work experience could also make you think about a fresh career path for your future.
